Second Outbreak Symptoms?

Recommended Posts

Hello! First of all, let me say I'm so happy something like this exists. I'm already so grateful for everyone here just knowing you are out there. I was diagnosed in July and haven't had a second outbreak yet... I don't think. I'm curious what people have experienced (particularly females) and whether or not there are symptoms of shedding between. Thanks in advance for any help!

It's going to be different for everyone and, unfortunately, it just takes time to pinpoint your own prodrome symptoms. Some of the common ones include a tingling sensation, swelling and pain of the lymph nodes in the groin region. I've experienced both of these. I also feel a pain that feels like muscle soreness in an odd place - right where my legs and butt cheeks meet.


It might help to keep a journal - keeping tabs on your diet, activity level, stress levels, sexual activity, shaving/waxing any any physical symptoms that seem out of the norm for you. Finding a pattern can help determine your trigger(s) so you can try to avoid future flare-ups.


Do what you can to help build up your immune system as well. I've heard L-Lysine supplements help others but I haven't personally seen a difference between taking them and not. A daily probiotic did help me. A healthy diet can be beneficial as well.
